At the beginning stages of a car build here. I thought I would create a thread for those who wanted to follow along. I may ask opinions on this or that along the way. If you have any dos or don’ts I will listen.

A little about the build idea. 66 Chevy II all steel except for hood and deck lid. 25.2 chassis specs.

I like it. I love Chevy II's. Looks like a good start with a nice body.

Check out the Tim Mcamis build series on YouTube. He has a lot of great tips if you need them. Good luck on your build.

I put the chassis-works bolt on strut front end on mine. I like the 6” travel just not crazy about Alstons way of doing things. They won’t even sale a rebuild kit for the struts. Send them in and they will redo them

Hands down my favorite model of Nova, looks like you are off to a solid start. Nothing much more gratifying than reaching your own accomplishments!

I had a 67 2dr Hardtop. I sold it off 23 years ago so I could put my truck back together. I wish I would have kept it.
